Cardinal Braz de Aviz visits the Discalced Carmelites of Bologna

On June 10th, our sisters in Bologna received a fraternal visit from the Cardinal Prefect of the CIVCSVA, João Cardinal Bráz de Aviz, who was traveling to nearby Pontecchio Marconi to participate in a day of the General Chapter of Father Kolbe’s Missionaries of the Immaculata.

During his brief visit, Cardinal Bráz de Aviz prayed with the sisters and had a spontaneous dialogue with them, covering topics specific to the nuns’ life, their simple and joyful witness, and the spirit of communion amongst themselves and with the Church that they convey, which he bid them to continue cultivating.

Likewise, our sisters shared some initial impressions about the Cor Orans instructions for the Contemplative Life of Women.

A more detailed account of the visit can be found on the Italian version of the Web page in that language.
